Yasmin Dar, a proud graduate of Aiea High School, is a full-time businesswoman and full-time mom of three. Yasmin graduated with a B.A. in biology and later received her M.A. in communications. Medical school was in her future; however, a stroke of luck changed her career path to television news. While pursuing her master’s, she was a traffic anchor and social media reporter for KITV4 morning news. Eventually, she moved to Eugene, Oregon to become the primetime evening anchor for KVAL-TV. After giving birth to her son, she moved back to Honolulu with her husband, Sal Fasi, to raise their child. The couple now have three children, Gianluca, Zoya, and another on the way.

For three years, Yasmin was the digital media specialist for Governor David Ige where she managed his social channels and online content for the governor’s website. Today, she is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of RKT Media, a video production company help local business and non-profits tell their story through creative videos which are produced by professional journalists and videographers.
